He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever.

The quote in the title is an old Chinese proverb I found interesting, and decided to act on that.

Do you have a question that you want answered?

Are you dying to know what other people think about a certain subject, idea, or just bored?

I propose to start asking people in New York City a question or two, film them on camera, for a week. Then, compose their responses into a short clip and show it to you.

I will take suggestions for questions on this post, and if you like someone else’s suggestion, respond to their post with your vote.

What do you think?

Oh, yeah, and Happy Independence Day.
